We’re happy to announce a new event we’re running in collaboration with the Environment Agency in Bristol. Environment Hack will be bringing together software/hardware developers, Environment Agency experts and interesting data. The goal is to create cool demos that showcase how technology can help us all be more green and environmentally responsible.
This Monday we’re holding the first Geeks of London Movie Club. This will be a monthly meetup for fans of movies to get out of the house and enjoy a movie with other geeks.
Our first movie will be The Amazing Spider-Man, but the next movies will be chosen by you.
- The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D
- Monday July 16th, 20:40, but we’re doing food before, see below.
- On the Sky screen at the Cineworld at The O2 Greenwich, which is seriously one of the best screens besides the IMAX.
- £13.50 regular entry, but we recommend you get a Cineworld Unlimited Pass if you intend to come along more often and already live near a Cineworld.
Seeing as this movie isn’t starting very early we decided we should meet up before for food instead of after for drinks.
- Wagamama @ The O2
- Monday July 16th, 19:00
We don’t have a signup for this event but let us know on Lanyrd if you’re coming, it would be great to have some numbers.

Cineworld Unlimited 1 month free
If you have a Cineworld near you it might be worth looking at a Cineworld Unlimited pass. For £14.99 a month you get access to all the Cineworlds in the UK (except the ones in the London West End). That’s less than the cost of 2 tickets at the Cineworld at The O2 Greenwich.
Sign up on unlimitedcineworld.com and use the code below to get 1 month extra (and get some of the Geeks of London crew one month free too):
The last 3 years we’ve been running BarCamp London. Initially as a loose group from the BarCamp community and eventually as Geeks of London. We enjoyed running them but sadly this year it looks like we’re simply not going to have the time.
Between BarCamp Berkshire, some other events we have planned for later in the year, and all of us getting jobs that are more demanding than in previous years, we simply don’t have the time.
So here’s a call to arms: you should run BarCamp London this year!
We welcome any group of people excited enough to give it a try. We might not be able to help directly but we think we’ve worked very hard in the last few years to make it easier for someone to take it over from us. We have a large list of regular attendees, the mailing lists, the twitter account, the domains, and most importantly the relationships with our previous sponsors.
So let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to run it this year, we are looking forward to attending your BarCamp London 10!
SXSW is now just under three months away and with hotels filling up fast we are planning to setup a London Embassy in Austin during SXSW Interactive from March 7th to March 14th for fellow Brits and our friends!
Grab your camera, put on your walking shoes and come on a photowalk down the River Thames!
Who should come on this photowalk? Anyone! Beginners, pros and anyone interesting in learning more about photography are welcome.
Join us! We’ll walk, talk, snap, and learn together.
The route is 15.1km. http://g.co/maps/yx2wu and we will end up Westminister for some night photography followed by dinner.
Our hashtag for the walk is: #ldnphotogs
